Donate Your Holiday Cards

Posted on Jan 10, 2015

Every year I take down my holiday cards and I really don’t want to recycle them, but I can’t keep them all either. So I looked online and there are so many different charities that will take your holiday or all occasion cards. What a great way to give back and recycle at the same time! I found a place called St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. There are a couple easy rules they ask that you follow… Cannot be American Greetings, Hallmark, or Disney Send only the front of the card The back of the front of the card must have no writing   If you would like to participate, their address is: Recycled Card Program, 100 St. Jude’s Street, Boulder City, NV...

April is Earth Month

Posted on Apr 7, 2014

We are so busy in our day-to-day lives that we may not take time to think about our energy consumption. It’s important not only for our Earth, but for our pockets too. I found some interesting facts that I had no idea about, here they are: Replacing your old thermostat with a new programmable one is a great way to save energy. They are relatively inexpensive and you can get them at your local hardware store. This is something to look for when you are purchasing an air conditioner this Summer. Make sure the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) is 14 or higher. Who knew? Lower the thermostat on your electric water heater to 120 degrees. Americans only recycle about 30% of their waste. If we could double that to 60%, we would save 315 million barrels of oil per year. That is a lot of $$$$ and too much going to our landfills. If you don’t already, start recycling now! Don’t know where to donate or how to get rid of those old clothes or kitchen items. Check out Freecycle, where you can post those items you don’t want and someone who needs them will take them off your...

Spring Cleaning – Closet Purge

Posted on Mar 27, 2014

Spring is here, at least according to the calendar. Eventually we will all need to dig out our Spring and Summer clothes and gladly put our Winter clothes to rest. Unfortunately I do not have a walk-in closet, so I have taken over both closets in the master bedroom and part of the closet in our guest bedroom, where I keep off-season clothing. The first thing I do is swap out my Summer/Winter clothes from one closet to the other. While I’m swapping out my clothes, I’m simultaneously pulling out those clothes I have not worn in over a year. I throw those in a donate pile. If you have a walk-in or large enough closet to hold your entire wardrobe, I would keep your current season accessible and the off-season items toward the back or in an area less accessible. Here are some donation/consignment places for clothing in the area: www.conshyconsignment.com www.greenestreet.com www.impactthriftstores.org...
